I am going to say that Terry's books did for me all the things the others got from him but the reading bit was and still is hard through dyslexia. I have migrated to the Audio books rather than the written word and have a program that reads web pages and text files to me. Don't get me wrong I can read it just takes time. The spell checker in FireFox is also a blessing and helps you read what i type
The difference is it was more than the writings of Terry it also comes down to the people (that's you guys). The people who are Pratchett'ites are a different breed to all the other people in the world.I joined my first Forum in 2005 and then another in 2007. The people (my friends) encourage everyone and I took the encouragement and have done things that I never deemed possible. I have an active web "thebogieman" page that comes up as the 8th search in google and I have a book of poetry published by lulu dot com. Without you people out there reading this I could never have done this.
All of you.
